Violations

Violations can result in both civil and criminal penalties for the individual and for the institution. In addition to a civil penalty for each violation of the export regulation, there are criminal penalties that may be imposed against the university and a fine and/or imprisonment of not more than 10 years against the individual. Voluntary self-disclosures, if made appropriately, can mitigate the seriousness of the penalty. Penalties apply to each individual violation, which means that if a violation relates to more than one controlled material or item or occurs on more than one occasion, each item or incident may trigger a penalty.
